Bread pudding. I get goosebumps just thinking about all the different flavor combinations I could make. There are savory ones like my parmesan bread pudding with bacon and kale, and then there are the magical sweet ones like this chocolate swirl bread pudding.
I have a love/hate relationship with bread pudding. It’s one of my favorite things to make, but it’s so darn hard to photograph. It’s often messy, but then again, it’s usually the messy foods that are the tastiest. Bread soaked in a rich custard and baked until golden. It sounds sooo delicious, right?
A couple of weeks ago, La Jolla Baking Company offered to send me a sample of their new chocolate swirl sliced bread. I’ve never been one to shy away from chocolate, so I agreed to give it a try.
OH MAN. Alex and I couldn’t stop eating it. No kidding. We ate for it breakfast every morning for a week. (Simply toasted with with a slather of peanut butter for me and almond butter for Alex.) Sure I could have kept eating the chocolate swirl bread as toast, but that’s not good enough for me. I need more. I need bread pudding!
